  • This museum was an amazing discovery! Offers many interactive activities, 3D cinema, as well as playground. We have been in the Museum for over 3 hours and we had so much fun: our 5 years no longer wanted to leave! The only con was the Planetarium: boils down to one lady who, speaking only in Spanish and at the speed of light, explains planets, stars and space ... It would also be interesting if you could follow it, but even I, who speak Spanish, I struggled.

  • We wanted to do a visit express and just coming out late at the Museum. EVERYTHING you can touch. It is from a cabin of an aircraft to geometric problems that you must try to solve. 100% recommended and more if you go with small children.

  • Excellent museum for adults and children alike. Reasonable entrance fee of €6 per person and you can pay €1-€2 extra for things like the 3d cinema and robot arm.
  • Honestly, I never thought that would be interesting! It was right infront of my hotel and in the last day of my visit to Gran Canaria I thought I'd give it a try .. spent half a day there and I loved it! very interesting and I think it's great for kids.
  • Great place! For children will be perfect! But I was 27, and it was very interesting))
  • Pretty good but noting exceptional. Also 6 euros for the ticket makes it really good value
  • Great place for adults and children. Plenty of activities in English and Spanish. At least 4 hours if visited completely.
